At the American Music Awards 2021, Cardi B dazzled fans with a surprise appearance on the red carpet in a solid gold mask. The singer, who is hosting the event this year, made two appearances on the red carpet, posing in a black floor-length gown with a sequin leopard-print pattern for the first look.

Fans took to Twitter to express their surprise at the striking outfit choice, with some finding it amusing and others hailing Cardi as a fashion icon.
